Waste2Wear produces fabrics and textile products from recycled plastic bottles since 2008. The company started off as a spin-off of Vision Textiles, a company established in China since 1998 by the Dutch textile engineer Monique Maissan with the objective of producing high-quality garments in a responsible way.
Nowadays we employ 80 employees, covering almost 20 nationalities and have offices in nine countries around the world.
While the fashion industry is rapidly moving towards sustainability, our track record shows we are green at our core and innovation is in our DNA. Ever since Waste2Wear was founded, it challenged the fashion and textile industry to be a force for good. By applying circular economy solutions and a clear focus on reducing plastic waste, we bring a positive environmental impact. Believing ‘a force for good’ goes beyond addressing environmental impact, we’ve set up several programs, like the Waste2Wear Ocean Plastics Project.
Today, Waste2Wear aims to take the transparency of its value chain to the next level. We’re the only supplier in the textile industry offering innovative textiles made from post-consumer plastics, that are fully certified and traceable using blockchain technology.
With this experience, we are now entering other industries like interior design and construction. In the next ten years, wherein sustainability can no longer be ignored, Waste2Wear’s goal is to replace all virgin polyester in fabrics with recycled qualities within a responsible, traceable and measurable value chain.
We are able to do this because of our trusted network of knowledgable partners and reliable suppliers, including a dynamic circle of waste collectors, NGO’s, governments and many more; together we call it our WE-CO SYSTEM.
We believe in doing business for good. That may sound easy, but in practice it means you will face dilemmas. We manage those by staying true to who we are. That’s why we believe a good business relationship starts with talking about values. Reach out to us, let’s talk and start doing business for good!
